Representative Text

1 Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Unto Thee we call;
friend of little children,
Guide us, lest we fall.
While we’re marching onward,
In the upward way,
Till we reach the City
Of eternal day.

2 Fill us with Thy goodness,
And Thy wondrous love;
Lead us to the mansions
Thou hast built above;
In the hour of weakness,
Make our hearts Thy care,
Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Hear our earnest prayer.

3 Let Thy Holy Spirit
Pardon and subdue
All the sin within us;
Make us pure and true.
Jesus, our Redeemer,
Of celestial birth,
Son of God, we hail Thee
King of heaven and earth!
